ArchiMate® Modeling Notation for the Financial Industry Reference Model: Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN)

This document provides guidance on how the ArchiMate Specification, a standard of The Open Group, can be used to exploit the value of the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) Financial Industry Reference Model.

It is designed to provide a guide to anyone involved or interested in how to manage the transition to a digital financial institution. It guides an Enterprise Architecture organization to develop an agile, lean, and stable banking architecture using the ArchiMate language and BIAN.

PNC Financial Services Group

The BIAN model fits perfectly in line with how we view enterprise architecture (EA) at PNC. One of the first steps we took as an organisation was to bring a business perspective to enterprise architecture. To us, technology is not just a collection of servers and software, but rather a set of technical solutions that are aligned to specific business capabilities and functions.

Asseco SEE

As a vendor that grew through acquisitions, we inherited a rich collection of applications that have their application specific interfaces. Applications that had similar scope ended up having their specific interfaces for essentially the same responsibilities. One of our strategic goals was to cut integration time and cost and over time achieve plug-and-play interoperability between different applications in our portfolio.
